Chrome Bravo Night Rolltop Backpack With 3M Reflective Panel
You like it or not there are times you need to travel after the sun sets! I know it sounds very dramatic, but I am not thinking at “The Walking Dead” type of night travelling to cross the country looking for a safe place to settle, I am thinking more about commuting from work to home, going out to run a couple of errands or grab some grocery or even going to see some friends!

Either you move by walking, biking, skateboarding or whatever other way, when traveling at night your need to stay visible.

The Bravo Night Backpack was designed to help in such situations! The backpack features a rolltop build, has a clean, black design so you can use it at school, work and anywhere else, and features a wide 3M reflective panel visible from up to 100 meters at night.

ALSO READ about the Funnell, The Ejectable Jacket Backpack and the Boblbee Megalopolis Aero Raider’s Back Protector Backpack.

The Bravo Night has an extensible format and, be used as a commuter bag (20 liters volume) as well as a grocery backpack (40 liters expanded), sports a welded-waterproof main compartment made of Cordura canvas to keep your gear safe even in the rain and an easy-to-reach front padded laptop sleeve which can be accessed even if the bag is expanded and full of gear.

Two cross compression straps situated on the front of the backpack were included to allow hauling extra gear such as wheel sets, frames, helmets and wet gear.

Navdy  Or How To Safely Interact With Your Smartphone While Driving & Still Keeping Your Eyes On The Road
Smartphones and cars don’t really go hand in hand! There are too many temptations to take your eyes from the road and check your phone for incoming text massages, navigation directions, emails, social media notifications and messages, dial calls and so on … And taking your eyes from the road causes accidents!

Navdy is a nifty car gadget that promises to solve this issue and allow you to interact with your smartphone while keeping your eyes on the road. How do they do it? You simply put Navdy on your car’s dashboard, it connects via Bluetooth to your iPhone or Android smartphone and, via a HUD (heads-up display), it projects information from your phone and displays it … on the road in front of your vehicle! Well, it doesn’t really project the info on the road, but on the device’s 5.1in transparent screen, which makes it look like it’s projected on the road in front of you.

ALSO CHECK the Garmin Windshield HUD (Head-Up Display) and the Skully P1 HUD Motorcycle Helmet we wrote about earlier.

Other than displaying navigation directions, Navdy can be controlled via air-gestures and voice commands to allow you to send messages and emails, answer and dial calls, control music playback and, if connected to the car’s computer via the OBDII interface, can allow you to monitor car performance and diagnostics by displaying the info on its HUD.

Navdy is presently on a private crowdfunding campaign and you can pre-order one for $299. Delivery is scheduled for early 2015.
